Betabrand is seeking a Design Director to lead our very-unique approach to creating & launching new products. You will manage a team of 6 plus an audience of hundreds of thousands of participant consumers & designers!
You’ll inspire a global design dialog and launch new products weekly -- shoes, bags, pants, jackets, dresses, sweaters and all manner of soft goods. Soon more!
We ask: What happens when the Web builds a clothing brand?
The result: Products come to life like memes on Betabrand and our design & creative departments socialize them to life. Quickly. Sometimes in days!
We’ve launched over a thousand products in this manner. The concepts come from our in-house design team, independent designers, fans, and major brands like The North Face, Timberland, Vivobarefoot, and more.
We’re looking for someone with experience using a human-centered design approach to create products for women. And communicating the value of those designs too.
We’re looking for a person who’s created products from an initial idea to launch. Fashion experience is a plus, but we’re open to candidates from other industries who’ve connected consumer need with novel ideas -- particularly if you’ve taken a leading role in communication.
